The Advanced City Slicker Bag Pattern is a conveniently size handbag that helps you stay organized all day with lots of pockets! Handy features include a back slip pocket for your cellphone, a front twist lock pocket, and a secure top zippered closure. Inside this bag is a pleated pocket, pen pockets, and an additional zippered pocket to keep your small items safe. The finished size is approximtely 40cm (15 ¾”) W X 25cm (10”) H X 10cm (4”) D.

MATERIALS LIST: (Note yardage is meant as a guide and may not be exact)

  • Exterior fabric: 90 cm (1 yard) of 112cm (44”) wide fabric (OR, for a 3-toned bag, black – 46cm (½ yard), cream – 30cm (12”), tan – 30cm (12”); refer to photo in your pattern as a guide to fabric placement)
  • Lining fabric: 90 cm (1 yard) of 112cm (44”) wide fabric
  • Fusible interfacing: mid-weight, 110cm (42”) of 112cm (44”) wide interfacing [Pellon Shape-Flex SF101 is a good choice – 3m (3¼ yards)]
  • ByAnnie’s Soft & Stable: 46cm X 91cm (18” X 36”), or substitute with Headliner Foam and a heavy weight interfacing for the exterior (you can also use fusible fleece, however, you will end up with a bag that is more floppy)
  • Fusible Fleece: 20cm (8”) 971F Thermolam Plus for the Straps, Front Pocket & Front Pocket Flap.
  • Matching thread (I use Gutermann Polyester)
  • 1 X 20cm (8”) dress zipper or longer, cut down to size for interior zipper pocket
  • 1 X 48cm (19”) handbag zipper or longer, cut down to size for your zipper closure
  • 1 X twist lock. I’ve used one which is 60mm x 28mm ( 2 ¾” x 1 1/16” )
  • 4 X 2.5cm (1”) inner diameter rings
  • 12 X 8mm (⅓”) rivets (optional)
  • 2 X 2.5cm (1”) inner diameter rectangular sliders for side strap decoration (optional)
  • Double-sided Wonder Tape (optional BUT very handy)
  • Small amount of fray stopper and craft glue for setting twist lock (optional BUT makes the job more professional)

There is a 1 page cover photo, a 1 page Table of Contents, 1 page of printing instructions, 1 page of test squares, 49 pages of instructions and photos, 13 pages of pattern pieces, and a text only version of the pattern (perfect for printing out - saves on ink!) that is 12 pages.
